Reconsidering Redevelopment - Neighborhood Based Economic Development in Los AngelesDOWNLOAD THIS DOCUMENT
"Reconsidering Redevelopment" is a new Public Counsel report co-authored by more than a dozen community-based groups working in some of Los Angeles’ poorest areas.
"Reconsidering Redevelopment" finds that the 2011 dissolution of the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency eliminated effective programs that were providing jobs and homes in Los Angeles’s poorest communities. "Reconsidering Redevelopment" highlights the need to fill this void with new programs to address the region’s most distressed communities and shares important lessons for policy makers and case studies of workforce development, affordable housing, and other projects created jointly by neighborhood-based developers and the former redevelopment agency in Los Angeles.
